Hi, I have scabies since last summer, I didn't know it was scabies and thought it was bed bugs, anyways I went to the hospital and they told me its scabies and gave me a prescription for benzyl benzoate, that was last winter, Ive applied so much of the cream since then and most of the rash went away but it doesnt go away completely, whenever I stop applying the cream after a few weeks I get new spots and start to itch again.. since Ive started treatment Ive applied two and a half liters of the cream which is too much, I constantly washed my clothes in hot water and everything but I cant get rid of it.. Im not sure if I keep getting reinfected from blankets or clothes or something or if the cream just isn't that effective in the first place. Thats the only medicine for scabies where I live so I cant try another medicine.. it just doesnt make sense to me that I'm not cured yet.. the instructions on the medicine even say apply once or just a few times.
I'm not sure where the fault is, how long exactly do I have to wait before wearing clothes again after applying the cream? I usually wait around 10 mins, the cream have dried off by that point but the skin stays oily for a long time. Should I wait more or something.. Ive read that salt worked for some so im gonna try to scrub sea salt on myself tomorrow.
